Radcliffe is a skilled exegete of the Christian life. In this work, he addresses the perennial question of 'why church?' through an exploration of a liturgically-shaped existence. This is not another piece of historical critique of liturgical development, but an explication of how a life lived with God is defined by the movement and posture of the Eucharist. He writes as a Roman Catholic, as a Dominican (as he should); however, this book shifts common ecclesial boundaries through an invitation to a holy life lived as a gift from a holy God. In reading, the text becomes a kind of feast that serves as a sign to the heavenly feast it celebrates. Read it for Lent.
